When the OnePlus 5T was released last year, it still came with Android Nougat installed on it which was a bit of a bummer as we’re sure some were expecting Android Oreo. However OnePlus later confirmed that the Oreo update would be released early 2018, and sure enough it has.
In an announcement made on the OnePlus Forums, the company has confirmed that the Android 8.0 Oreo update has begun rolling out to OnePlus 5T users, which will effectively bump it up to OxygenOS 5.0.2 (this is the ROM that OnePlus is using for its phones). The update doesn’t really bring about any surprises as it will come with features that one might expect from the Oreo update.
As OnePlus mentions in its post on the forums, the initial rollout has begun and will only reach a small percentage of users at the start, but it should start rolling out on a wider scale in the coming days and weeks, so users will want to keep an eye out for the update notification if they haven’t been prompted already.
With this release, pretty much all of the company’s handsets eligible for the Oreo update have been updated already. The first phones to receive it was back in November last year with the OnePlus 3 and 3T, which was later followed by the OnePlus 5 in December.
